Preview images from Snagit Library on second screen in full size

Snagit Library is a great feature which helps to keep captures organized.

However, sometimes I need to look through each capture individually to locate some information. When doing so, I want to click on a capture (as a thumbnail or even as an entry in the list) and see it in full size on my second screen.

Let me quickly preview Snagit captures in full size on the second screen.

Agree. This would be a very handy feature. I too have an extensive SnagIt Library and usually, the small thumbnails are too small to find what I want yet expanding the thumbnail size means you can't see very many captures on the screen as you navigate them.

Suggestion: Add the ability to "Pop out" the Library screen. Add an icon to allow that. On the Popped-out window, have an icon to "un-pop."

+1. I am frequently looking through the saved screenshots for details of some screenshot I've saved, and it is often a slow process to have to let SnagIt load each image into the editor, and then if it is not the correct one go back to the Library and try again.

On SnagIt Mac, I'm imaging this would be pressing the spacebar like previewing files in Finder and showing an image preview without loading it to the editor - select the thumbnail, press spacebar once to open the preview and again to close it.

The interesting thing is that SnagIt Mac already has this function except that instead of showing a full size preview of the image, it just shows the thumbnail in a preview window.  Here's a quick clip of current functionality:

Thanks for considering @snagit team!

Navigating in the library is a pain.

Showing Thumbnails is not enough. A quick way is needed to view an image in full size (including zoom functions) and get back to the library at the exact same position.

Imagine you are have scrolled captures with height of 10.000 pixels. You don't see anything in the library.

A preview pain would also be very usefull.

I would call features like this standard. What the use of the greatest capturing software if i can't manage the captures. Besides that i just love snag it ;-)

Definitely the biggest gap in functionality in Snagit, and for my part the most wanted
